Paper Title:
Effects of Surfactant Concentration on Step Height Reduction of SiO2 in Chemical Mechanical Polishing with Ceria Slurry
  Abstract

Ceria based slurries with and without PVP were prepared for the polishing of patterned and blanket wafers. The changes in the cross-sectional profiles of the oxide as a function of the polishing time and surfactant concentration were analyzed, in order to understand the mechanism by which the step height of the oxide is reduced during the CMP process. The reduction in the thickness as a function of the polishing time varied with the PVP surfactant concentration in the patterned wafer. When the surfactant concentration was increased to 0.8wt%, the material removal rate of oxide in the patterned wafer approached a maximum. The maximum removal rate observed at a surfactant concentration of 0.8wt% was explained by the competing effects of the increasing number of active particles and the increasing thickness of the viscous layer due to the addition of surfactant.
